Movies: Looper (2012)

For my first post on movies I’ll go over the 2012 science fiction film Looper. The film, directed by Rian Johnson, stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis.

Now I love movies and I love blogs but sometimes these online movie reviews can be way too long and drawn out. So I’ll keep my movie reviews succinct. Starting with this one.

Pros: Great acting. Great set-up. Great writing. Impressive use of special effects. Logical and simple explanation of time travel. Great art direction. And if the budget was really 30 million as states, I’m impressed.

Cons: None in my book. The only reason I see you not liking this film is if you don’t like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and/or Science Fiction.

Is it worth it to go see the film in any theaters that it’s still in? Yes. Is it worth a rental or dvd purchase? Absolutely. It’s an engrossing film that will wrap you up in it’s world, if you’re paying attention. My only gripe was that I thought they’d go in another direction with the ending….but I have to remember that Stanley Kubrick wasn’t directing this. But that’s not a condemnation. The film is awesome.

M.A.V.B.L.O.G. Score: 10 out of 10. For what it is…..this film rocks!
